Great news if you live in Canberra. The ACT Government’s Land Rent Scheme is a more affordable way to own your own home. That’s because you’re buying or building your home on land that’s rented from the government, so you only need a loan just for the building. This makes it way cheaper and faster to own your own home. But it’s only available in the ACT and eligibility criteria and government approval are required.
